Acerca de


Trying to understand the men in gray and the reasons that led to the War Between the States have been a favorite for historians and novices when reviewing this period of our history. Reverend Robert Catlett Cave wrote The Men in Gray in 1911 to help explain the Southern viewpoint on the conflict. At the unveiling of the monument to the Confederate Sailors and Soldiers of the Southern Confederacy in Libby Park, Richmond, Virginia, his oration sparked a controversy that led to the writing and explanation contained in this book.

Most books about the War Between the States are about battles, campaigns, strategies, tactics, personalities, and military activities. In contrast, Robert Cave has fairly and superbly presented the South’s side of the causes of this war. His purpose was to give everyone a truer and more just conception of the South’s motives, aims, lofty patriotism, and unwavering devotion to principle and constitutional law. Readers will find his purpose and analysis have been well served in this outstanding treatise about a very controversial subject.

About the Author:

After a distinguished career in the United States Air Force, which included a short tour in the White House, Colonel Walbrook D. Swank has devoted much time to writing about the Civil War. He is a member of the Society of Civil War Historians and the Military Order of the Stars and Bars from which he received its Distinguished Service Award. In recognition of his contributions to the preservation and promotion of our Southern heritage and history, the United Daughters of the Confederacy has awarded him the coveted Jefferson Davis Medal.

Robert Cave was a member of the 13th Virginia Infantry serving under General “Stonewall” Jackson during the North-South conflict. Following the war he entered the ministry of the Christian church and became a prominent and popular clergyman, orator, and writer in St. Louis, Missouri.
